Jane Thomas, vice-principal academic of King’s Ely, added: “This year group faced the challenges of new linear, reformed A Levels in all of their subjects.

“Inevitably, new examination specifications bring an element of uncertainty for both teachers and students therefore we are particularly delighted with these results.”
